My mom knows the key to my heart and every time I come home to visit her in Boca it’s waiting there in the refrigerator; a plastic container of my favorite cookies of all time, rainbow cookies, purchased from Bagels With just down the street.

Clams with White Wine, Sweet Corn, and Basil


If you were to do a graph–and I’m not a graph person, so you’d have to help me out here–measuring the effort you put into a dinner vs.

Quick-Brined Pork Chops with Pan-Fried Cauliflower

One Night in Strasbourg (Lunch at Chez Yvonne–Featuring Chocroute Garnie–and An Epic Michelin-Starred Dinner at Buerehiesel)


Once I made up my mind that I would travel to Paris from London by train, I looked at a map and realized it would be silly to return to London to fly to Munich (where I’d be meeting Craig for the Munich Film Festival two days later); a far more sane idea would be to keep moving east, via train, stopping over somewhere along the way.

The Skeleton Twins Trailer Is Here!

At this point, you’re probably wondering: “When are we going to get to see this Skeleton Twins movie you keep yammering on about?

A Jolly Jaunt Through London With Stops At The Maltby Street Market, Tayyabs, St. John, Ottolenghi, The River Cafe, and Quo Vadis


Hello from a train. I’m writing this as I make my way from London to Paris through the Chunnel; there’s no Wifi, so by the time I hit “publish,” I’ll be in my hotel, but you can still picture me on a train.

Sometimes you make dinner, and everyone nods in approval, eating pleasantly and saying, “This is very good.

FOMIM: Fear of Missing Important Meals (While Traveling)


It’s a very privileged problem to have, let’s acknowledge that out of the gate. Most people in this world who are worrying about food are worrying about how to get enough on to the table, not how to eat the very best the world has to offer while flitting about.

How To Host An Indoor Clambake


My usual dinner party process goes like this: a day or two before a dinner party, I grab a handful of cookbooks off my towering cookbook shelf and casually thumb through them.
